  1. "Very nice place to be employed."

    Former Employee - Manager in Sherman Oaks, CA

    I worked at Vintage Inns part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are nice, the work environment is decent. Keep everything clean and do your job well, and there will be no problems.

    Cons

    The hours (at least for me) were not the best, and the location wasn't great, but what place is, really?

    I have been working at Vintage Inns part-time

    I worked at Vintage Inns part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They were pretty flexible with my hours considering I am also a student, but that was it.

    Cons

    This is a completely unorganised business, they are biased, the kitchen has a completely bad attitude towards work and each other, and are extremely disrespectful towards each other and the customers.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise them to hire fair managers. I worked as the bartender, always showed to work on time, worked every hour they needed, stayed over time and offered help as a chef when they were in need. However, they fired me based on the fact that I could not help out in the kitchen for a weekend on short notice because I had a surprise trip to visit my fiancé after a few months of not seeing her. No one had warned me beforehand that they were unhappy with this, and let me go for four days only to return and say that I made the wrong decision and I cannot work there anymore.

    I worked at Vintage Inns part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The tips are great and customers mostly nice

    Cons

    No communication between employee and employer. The manager doesn't put the rota so is available to people

    Advice to Management

    Train employees better and make rota more accessible not just in the bar.

    I worked at Vintage Inns part-time

    Pros

    Lovely people, flexible working hours. Great for a part time job whilst studying. I really enjoyed my time working for them as a company.

    Cons

    Late nights, pub was in the middle of know where so late night driving home. Shifts work can be quite tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Always have a consistent manager, not governed by just an area manager and waitresses. The pub was changing hands just after I got the job and it wasn't run properly for a few months.

    Pros

    Easy if you've been in the industry for over a year. Some ok benefits but not many.

    Cons

    Management not understanding Health and Safety, deplaodated FOH and BOH. 20 minute break when working 8+ hours. Staff are always at each others throats, no sense of team work.

    Advice to Management

    Give your staff better pay and stop telling lies to staff.
